Information

Suit Sizing

Suit sizes have one number and one descriptive word (for example, 38 short, 40 regular, 42 long). The number refers to your chest measurement, and the descriptive word refers to the length of the jacket. Check your own measurements against a suit you already own referring to the chart below, inspect your label sizing inside your trousers and inside pocket of the suit lining as a guide.

Measuring Guide

Below is a list of the most commonly used product measurement terms. To help you choose the best size we recommend that you keep the measurement tape loose enough so that you can fit one finger in between the body and the tape when taking measurements.

Neck (1)
Measure around the base of the neck where the collar sits.

Shoulder (2)
Measure shoulder tip to shoulder tip.

Chest (3)
Measure around the chest at the fullest part, placing the tape up close under the arms.

Waist (4)
Measure your waistband.

Sleeve (5)
Measure from the centre of your collar to the tip of your shoulder and to the end of your sleeve.

Inside Leg (6)
Measure the distance from the top of the inside of your leg (at the crouch) to your ankle.
